After all,...God has ordained that you should be going through these situations in order to focus your thinking on Him. I Peter 1-5 is all about suffering and really goes hand in hand with Jay's book.
Remember too that whatever you are going through brother or sister in Christ, it is only a tiny dot on the endless line of Eternity.....keep that thought in mind because you are the blessed winner already!!
The core message from this passage of Scripture is spelt out in the final verse: "Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." (v21) and Adams takes the reader through various ways of doing good.
I particularly enjoyed the first half of the book where Adams spends a lot of time reflecting on the spiritual war that is taking place all around us. We are in a war but we have the victory if we keep our eyes focused on Jesus and keep leaning on Him. I know in some of my own struggles, when I call out to Jesus, the load lessens immediately.
This is a very good resource for someone who may be struggling with a lot of anger or resentment.
